Cinematic Sketch Spreads



I came out of Artur Dabrowski's blog feeling like I just watched an epic fantasy, but I was actually looking through his sketchbook. Dabrowski's concepts are too large for one page, so in idle moments during subway rides, or in waiting rooms, he doodles up entire journals with dark and mysterious spreads. Between the cinematic composition and the mythic settings, I can practically hear dramatic score pieces swelling in the background. See more

Open Call / A Robot Coloring Book

Over the next few months we plan on printing our second mini-coloring book. Our first -- The Quintessential, Quirky, Compendium of Cats -- featured 28 global artists in a mashup of styles honoring our feline friends.

This time around we are looking to expand our mini-book to feature over 35 artists and the theme will be robots! In celebration of everything bot - from clanky vintage metal and rusted bolts to B movie retro-futuristic robots - every page, with a drawing from a different artist, will make you want to robot dance.

Our only requirement is that the illustration fall within the robot theme- be it a unique homage to a beloved robotic icon, an uber-shiny mod design, or maybe an entire family of dark, overlord, microwave robots. It's your call, it's your page. The working title of the book is, "Blinking Lights & Beeping Parts: A Robot Coloring Book Collection by Doodlers Anonymous."

The deadline for submissions is April 2nd. Get submission details and upload instructions here

Art Direction and Adolescence by Alex Citrin



I first stumbled upon Alex Citrin's work through the illustration blog Brown Paper Bag, run by Sarah Barnes. The blog posted about Citrin's freshly published magazine Until Now, a fascinating and poignant collection of essays about coming of age. Each essay is accompanied by beautiful, powerful, and hilarious illustrations by artists from all over.



But beyond her talent as an art director, Alex Citrin's illustrations stand alone as unusual and interesting work I can totally relate to. I particularly love the way she creates a portrait with the dark lines, exaggerated features, and brooding expressions, and how most of the drawing is black and white but with carefully measured additions of color.

Inner Thoughts In Neon Pencil



Something eerie is happening. Ines Jakovljević's drawings are intensely personal and yet creepily inhuman. There's elements of biology textbook illustrations gone wrong, or gross-looking creatures found in the black depths of the sea. Enigmatic phrases are incorporated into the pictures, most of which sound to me like those nasty inner thoughts whispered to yourself in your head. These drawings have a bewitchingly sweet palette of vibrant neon and pastel colors, an unexpected choice for the gory visual details. I've been hooked and keep on diving deeper into Ines' color penciled inner world. See more

Coloring Book Interview Series, #13: Aphrodite Delaguiado



Aphrodite Delaguiado is a designer and illustrator who thinks with ink. What does that even mean? She understands mistakes aren't all that bad, and sometimes end up being the coolest part of the drawing. I poked Aphrodite with questions about her art and what I got in response was inspiring thoughts on doodling and some pretty worldly context for her illustration in our Coloring Book Volume 4.

A Drawing Desk Like No Other



As a parent of two little doodlers and a daily drawer myself, I can't help but fall in love with this Kickstarter project by The Cardboard Guys. They've taken everything great about fostering creativity in a kid and magically created a drawing desk and chair made of cardboard, that's fun to build, functional to use, and best of all designed to be doodled all over. The top of the desk even comes with cubbies to store all your art supplies and built to close away when not in use.

No joke, I want one for myself. They've only got 8 days left to meet their Kickstarter goal. Support them (before it's too late) and little ones will rejoice everywhere.

Tumblr of the Week: Miss Wearer's Rainbow POP Sketchbooks



When I was in elementary school, I had a sticker problem. I was addicted to buying rolls and packs of them and creating crazy colorful and hectic sticker collages. Seeing Miss Wearer's art brought these memories rushing back, because cotton candy rainbows and cutesy smiling creatures were exactly the kind of thing I couldn't get enough of. Her pop art is overloaded with retro palettes of bright colors that look so good you could eat them (it helps that a lot of her doodles seem to be dripping with ice cream fudge). It's no wonder her blog says "Draw what makes you smile." Miss Wearer's sharpie madness is gushing with playful sweetness and leaves you with a feel-good vibe that doesn't shake off.

If you're addicted to tumbling as well as doodling, follow Doodlers Anonymous on Tumblr for even more daily inspiration. You might even see yourself on there!
